Hi guys. For some reason it feels like I haven't posted in forever...which is sort of true, as instead of blog I've had to spend this week panic-revising for end of year tests and exams that I had long purposely forgotten about. Anyway, I'm back now (and on half term break eep!) and so after a nice morning taking photographs for my current art project and eating bread rolls with peanut butter, I decided to show you guys some of the things I've been up to.
I'm doing some work on portraits for art, and decided to try and take some Petra Collins-esque photos to work from, and while trying to get some outfits together I found this gorgeous dress in my dressing up box from when I was little. It was my mum's bridesmaid dress from the 70s, and it is absolutely amazing and frilly and pink and just completely perfect. It does have a little stain on the front though, which will explain why I'm holding flowers/an Agatha Christie novel in most pictures.
I felt so floaty and very virgin-suicides-like...despite the length and the hot pink colour, the feel of it made me think of Cecilia in her old wedding dress.

(This book & movie really fitted the vibes I'm feeling at the moment)
(vintage prom dresses are just amazing)
I took a whole bunch of photos this morning, so I'll be able to show them to you guys over the following week, along with some awesome pictures I intend to take over the half term (I'm meeting up with a couple of gorgeous blogging guurls, so expect some picture spamming).
